Are certain people more susceptible than others to COVID-19? How does the SARS-CoV-2 virus spread on surfaces and in the air? Can we develop a vaccine against COVID-19? These are some of the questions you might have wondered in the last few months. University of Helsinki researchers will answer these questions and more during an online event organized by the Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE) on Thursday 11.6.2020 at 10-11am, so mark your calendar!

Four researchers will introduce their COVID-19 research, sharing their views on how to solve this acute crisis, as well as find solutions for similar kinds of future challenges.
